Conference paper


As the outsourced manufacturing services flourish in social manufacturing, the production organizing mode has shifted to a horizontal one where manufacturing service providers collaborate to finish product development. So the integrated production and logistic service flow monitoring is urgently needed for product developers to realize closed-loop quality traceability, process efficiency enhancement, real-time inventory feedback and up-to-date logistic tracking. In this paper, a graphical formalized deduction method called RFID driven state block model is built to depict the integrated production and logistic service flow monitoring problem. The minimum unit of state block is a monitoring node and it contains a series of states, which are changing by time. Then two kinds of monitoring nodes are further illustrated. Based on that, the state changing event flow is built to depict the event inducing the state changing. Finally, a simulation example is discussed to verify the feasibility of the proposed model.
